Campus Pastor

John Chan

John was born in Hong Kong and grew up in a devout Christian family. He married his wife, Elizabeth in 2015. During his high school years, he emigrated with his family to Vancouver, where he was baptised.

John attended the University of British Columbia, pursuing a degree in Computer Science. He later returned to Hong Kong to work as a software engineer, spending over a decade in the tech industry.

 In 2018, John felt called to full-time ministry and joined the Saddleback Hong Kong Church, taking charge of campus coordination. After completing his theological training at Gate Seminary, he became a pastor responsible for small group ministries. Elizabeth also actively serves in the church alongside John, serving as a small group community leader.

 In recent years, John and Elizabeth have once again felt called by God to return to Canada, responding to the church's vision for overseas church planting. They have returned to Vancouver to assist in leading church planting efforts, becoming the campus pastor of Saddleback Church Vancouver.

 John is passionate about changing lives and helping others to discover their purpose and mission. God's love and teachings from Purpose Driven Life deeply inspire him to serve this generation faithfully.
